The polling data:

Democrats on Capitol Hill are once again talking about taxpayer-funded reparations as a tangible way to apologize for slavery in this country, but most voters still aren’t buying.

Just 21% of Likely U.S. Voters think U.S. taxpayers should pay reparations to black Americans who can prove they are descended from slaves. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 66% are opposed to slavery reparations. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided.

Seems to me that several questions arise from this.

The first I think we should be looking directly at is, what’s happened in the past when we’ve thrown money at the black community in an attempt to buy votes. So far, the totals have amounted to something on the order of $22BUSD, since we started such payouts, commonly referred to as the “war on poverty. ”

And for those who weren’t alive at the time Johnson put that mess into place, there were several people who regarded that war on poverty to be reparations.

It didn’t work to the advantage of the black community then, and it isn’t going to now. (As a parallel, observe what happened to the native American community.)

Given the number of Presidential contenders, every blessed one of which has been coming out in support of reparations… ( kiss Al Sharpton’s ring, you idiots) …one wonders how they’re going to manage the rejection of the American voter when the time comes.

It’s not like this polling data is anything new. The American voter has always rejected reparations.

The other question that leads to mind is… Why the sudden push to buy black votes?

Because of movements like “walk away”. Democrats are getting desperate. They know very well that they can’t afford to lose any significant percentage of black votes, because they’re never going to win the elections that way.

Thing is, the black voter has come to understand in the first person, in a way that cannot be overcome by throwing money at it, that generation after generation of Democrat party rule has created nothing but more racism, more hardship, more economic depression, more joblessness, and more misery.

They have been living in the completely disastrous direct result of it… And increasingly have identified the problem correctly as being the Democrat Party.

Increasingly, that’s costing the Democrats at the ballot box.

One Response to “Most Still Reject Reparations for Slavery”

  1. “(As a parallel, observe what happened to the native American community.)”

    Run that by real slow for me Eric.
    I’m still waiting for the accounting of Navajo timber money BIA holds in trust.  Best I recall that promise was made in the RayGun years and the process of finding the money as well.

    Eric says:
    Yeah, well let’s remember who was running Congress in those days and their record of keeping promises. Do you recall they promised to cut spending? If they had actually follow through with that promise as well as a number of others there wouldn’t have been any deficit whatsoever by the time Reagan left office.
